Nintendo Switch Online Safety Guide for Parents

Published 31st July 2019

The Switch is a hybrid console released by popular video game company Nintendo in 2017. It’s classed as a hybrid because it’s designed to be played both at home on a television-like traditional console (think a PlayStation or an Xbox) or out and about like a portable console, such as a GameBoy. It uses two detachable and wireless ‘Joy-Con’ controllers on either side of the console’s screen, which can be used by one or two players. The Switch can be played on the internet with the purchase of Nintendo Switch Online, in the living room together or on the go during long journeys, but bear in mind it needs to be charged just like anything else!
